Canvas operates on a three-week release cycle through which features are added or updated. Courseware Support posts highlights from Canvas’s production release notes, a link to these notes, and other relevant content to the Canvas at Penn blog a few days before the production release, which usually occurs on Saturdays. Please contact Courseware Support at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about an upcoming production release.
1/30/16 Production Release Highlights:
- Discussion and Announcement Reply URLs: When a user receives a notification for a reply to a discussion or announcement thread, the URL in the email links directly to the post rather than the top of the thread.
- Concluded Courses and Download All Submissions Button: Instructors can download submissions from concluded courses if they have the “View All Grades” permission.
- Re-muted Assignments and Submission Comments: If an instructor mutes an assignment, unmutes the assignment, and then mutes the assignment again, all comments are hidden from the submission.
- Link Validator & Overwritten Links: The Link Validator does not report overwritten (edited) links as deleted links.
